I had to find out what happened to Norman Goddard
With a bit of research, I found he died this same year, 1929, in a glider accident in Palo Alto California.

Fun & excitement for Goddard
This silent black and white 1929 film captures the fun of Norman Goddard flying in his glider. Well photographed for its time. Worth watching.

This was quite a beautiful film actually that lets us watch, from multiple angles, Norm Goddard, no idea who he is, or whether he¡¦s a person of consequence in aviation, flies his glider with ease, sometimes with a car tow, sometimes with a plane tow. And the camera is mounted.. sometimes from the field, sometimes from the plane.. the plane shots are the best, you get a total feel of being on the glider, and it sort of makes you want to do it yourself.. I can imagine how peaceful that is.
